Three Great Blue Herons Fishing at Sunset

Three Great Blue Herons, each fishing around sunset for one more meal….or two or three.

Each heron at a different distance from me.

  1. Great shots! As always of course. The last one is a beauty. Thanks Donna.What a treat. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Geat pictures! I envy your close location to Blackwater and Hoopers Island, but then again, I love my back yard and quiet cove as much as the wading birds do. Thanks for sharing.

  3. They certainly have focusing down to an art form. Liked all three, but I truly enjoyed the final scene. I rarely think to include the environment or setting that the birds are in. It does give that added touch of context. Great post, as always, Donna!
